This is a difficult and uncertain period for all of us, but we want to assure you that Streeton Lawyers will remain open to assist you with your enquiries and to help you to obtain the best possible outcome for your matter.
At the beginning of the week, the Local Court process was changed to align with the new social distancing rules. However, despite these changes we were still able to obtain excellent results for our clients due to our attention to detail and careful preparation of each case.
Zoe Whetham, Senior Associate, successfully argued for our client’s Aggravated Break and Enter charge to be dismissed under section 32, allowing our client to continue to engage in their rehabilitation rather than receiving a criminal conviction or finding of guilty.
For two clients charged with drug possession, Zoe was able to have both matters dismissed under section 10(1)(a), with no conviction being recorded.
Aaron Roberts, Associate, was able to successfully argue for our client charged with a serious common assault offence at a licensed premise that no conviction should be recorded against them considering their prior good character and positive engagement with rehabilitation since the commission of the offence. Our client was placed on a conditional release order, without conviction, for a period of 15 months.
The Local Court is implementing further changes starting on Monday, 30 March 2020. Despite this, you can be assured that Streeton Lawyers will continue to provide an exceptional service.
